Reflecting on Taiwan

The XL Catlin Seaview Survey team are all now back on home turf after a successful mission surveying the coral reefs of Taiwan. Now it is time to get down to some data processing and polishing our 360° images to share with the world.

Green Island

Green Island has become a centre for recreational #scuba diving in #Taiwan . You can jump into the warm waters here and see roughly 300 species of hard corals and sea snakes.

Over four days we managed to survey 70% of the reefs here.

Underwater Dragons

There are real life dragons living amongst us, but probably not the type you imagine... Endemic to the waters off south and east Australia, Sea Dragons are some of the most flamboyantly camouflaged creatures in the world. 

Their ornate leaf-like appendages allow them to blend in with the seaweed and kelp formations they live amongst. It's lucky they have such good camouflage skills, because they are terrible at swimming.

White Worldwide

The coral #bleaching currently impacting the Great Barrier Reef is part of a global bleaching event, which has already become the longest event ever recorded, impacting some reefs in consecutive years.

Old Man of the Sea

This fantastic photo of a Mola Mola (a.k.a Ocean Sunfish) looks remarkably like a giant swimming face.

El Niño affects more than coral

The warm ocean waters of a strong El Niño act as a lid on upwellings of cold, nutrient-rich water. This starves the tiny phytoplankton, which are a critical food source for fish - without them, fish populations drop, and the fishing industries that many coastal regions depend on can collapse.

Coral bleaching on the Great Barrier Reef

The coral bleaching on the far north Great Barrier Reef has prompted the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority to lift its response to Level 3 – the highest response level.

Underwater Alien

When searching for aliens we should stick our heads under the water...

This photo of a larval cusk eel in Hawaii won "Best of Show" in the 2015 Ocean Art Underwater Competition. The rarely seen eel has possibly never been photographed before.

Story
Tagline
The XL Catlin Seaview Survey is a global science and communication project - recording and revealing our rapidly changing oceans.
Introduction

The world’s reefs are in a dramatic state of decline - we’ve lost over 40% of corals over the last 50 years due to pollution, destructive fishing and climate change. According to the scientific community the decline is set to continue, it will affect 500 million people globally who rely on coral reefs for food, tourism income and coastal protection.

In response to this issue, the XL Catlin Seaview Survey is creating a baseline record of the world’s coral reefs, in high-resolution 360-degree panoramic vision. It will enable change to be clearly monitored over time and will help scientists, policy makers and the public at large to see and understand the issues reefs are facing and work out what needs to be done to best protect coral reefs now and into the future.

More from the project can be seen at http://catlinseaviewsurvey.com/
